  1. Digital twins can help organisations achieve various goals. In some cases, the end goal is for buildings and infrastructure to last longer, use less energy, and be safer. In others, it is enhancing the lives of people who interact with the built environment and its services. As highlighted by the Gemini Principles, these are not mutually exclusive aims, so wherever you are on your digital twin journey, it is important to consider other perspectives on the hybrid digital and physical systems you create. How will your digital twin fit into a wider ecosystem that provides services to all kinds of people? How will your asset’s performance impact the wider built environment and those who need to navigate it? Whose lives will be better if you share data securely and purposefully. In the first output from the Digital Twin Journeys series, the team working on the Smart Hospital of the Future research project, enabled by the Construction Innovation Hub, shared case studies from two smart hospitals and reflect on the innovations they saw during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this two video mini-series, the research team shares insights about how existing digital maturity enabled these hospitals to respond to the pandemic in agile ways, transforming to a hybrid physical and digital model of care distributed across multiple sites. They also explored how individual asset digital twins fit into a wider landscape of ecosystem services, guiding how we approach interoperability to achieve better outcomes. These insights inform the way we think about the role of digital twins in the smart built environments of the future. Dr Nirit Pilosof reflects that, ‘Digital twin as a concept can promote the design of the new system, the design process of the built environment and the technologies, but also really help operate… the hybrid models looking at the physical and virtual environments together.’ If health care is enabled by connected digital twins, how could the design of hospitals – and whole cities – change? In the videos, the team also discusses the limitations and ethics of services enabled by digital data and the use of digital technologies to improve staff safety, from isolated COVID wards to telemedicine. They frame service innovation as an iterative and collaborative process, informed by the needs of digital twin users, whether those are the asset owners and operators, or the people benefitting from the services they provide. According to project co-lead Dr Michael Barrett, ‘The people who need to drive the change are the people who are providing the service.' After the COVID crisis, we can better recognise what we have learned from implementing digital services at scale, as more people than ever have relied on them. The team reflect that having the right people in the right roles enabled the smart hospitals in these cases to transform their services rapidly in response to the need. The same human and organisational infrastructure that is creating the smart hospital of the future is also needed to create the flexible, responsive built environments of the future. Digital Twin Journeys can start from the perspective of available technology, from a problem-solving perspective, or from the perspective of users experiencing a service ecosystem. The smart hospitals project demonstrates the value of the latter two approaches. Hospital staff were instrumental in shaping the digitally-enabled service innovation to keep them safe and offer better services on and offsite, but project co-lead Dr Karl Prince points out how people accessing those services have to navigate a variety of different services in the built environment to get there. As we begin to connect digital twins together, we need to consider not just our own needs but the needs of others that digital twins can address. For more on this project, including links to their publications, see the team’s research profile on the CDBB website.

    Speaker: Mark Enzer, CDBB and CTO, Mott MacDonald The National Digital Twin (NDT) is a huge idea using “data for the public good” at its heart. The NDT promises enormous value for the people of the UK, both in the delivery of new assets and in the performance of our existing infrastructure. The fundamental premise behind the NDT is: Better data + Better Analysis => Better Decisions => Better outcomes for people and society – which is the essential promise of the Information Age. The NDT is not envisaged as one massive model of everything, but as an ecosystem of connected digital twins. Connecting digital twins requires interoperability to enable secure resilient data to be shared across organisational and sector boundaries. However, interoperability requires a level of data quality and consistency that “the market” cannot achieve on its own; it requires government-level leadership to create the right conditions for “the market” to adopt and deliver to the standards required and in doing so develop and thrive. This presentation will: introduce the National Digital Twin, explain what it is and why we need it, and outline what is being done to deliver it.

    Pre-register for the latest TwinTalks breakfast meeting by following the “Join me” link.This TwinTalks will feature an interview with Rachel Skinner, the 156th president of the Institution of Civil Engineers and executive director (transport) at global consultant WSP.Rachel is the youngest-ever president of the Institution of Civil Engineers and only the second woman to hold the post in its 203-year history. In 2016, she was named by the Daily Telegraph as one of the Top 50 Influential Women in Engineering. She was elected as a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2019 and is a commissioner for the Infrastructure Commission for Scotland.This TwinTalks breakfast will pick up the major theme of Rachel’s presidential year and focus on the challenges and opportunities facing infrastructure professionals in meeting the global net-zero carbon target. It will include the steps that must be taken to understand what net zero means for infrastructure, what we can do to mitigate climate change, and what has to happen to enable our infrastructure to become more resilient to the inevitable change.The interview will also explore how the use of data and new digital systems can help the industry to accelerate its change towards a net-zero future and help the sector to better understand the impact of decisions taken across the planning, design, construction, and operation of assets. As usual, questions from delegates will be welcomed throughout the one-hour session. https://www.linkedin.com/events/twintalks-13avirtualbreakfastwi6774950486006095872/

    The value of, and from, Data

    For me, Digital Twins are for acquiring, maintaining and exploiting Data - as a means to an end. We need to shift the typical focus of many organisations away from technology and "IT" towards understanding this perspective. I think the real value comes from thinking about Data Flows and not just the Data (store / Lake / whatever). This is my perspective also in the context of Asset Management. I am not associated with Anmut, but I recommend this well-written Report. (They have collaborated with Highways England to do some extremely exciting and useful work re Gemini.) https://anmut.co.uk/insights/ https://www.linkedin.com/posts/guyjdavis96_data-research-datavalue-activity-6739116308098514944-l4Vo

  7. I was reccently introduced to the work on Digital Twins that the City of Wellington is involved in. I share some links with the DT Hub community. Unlocking the Value of Data: Managing New Zealand’s Interconnected Infrastructure Plus, check out these links too.. which where shared with me by Sean Audain from Wellington City Council who is leading the Digital Twin activity in the city. "We have been on this trip for a while - here is an article on our approach https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/towards-city-digital-twins-sean-audain/ - the main developments since it was written was a split between the city twin and the organisational twin - something that will be formalised in the forthcoming digital strategy. To give you an idea of progress in the visualisation layer this is what the original looked like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGRBB-9jjik&feature=youtu.beback in 2017 - the new engines we are testing now look like this https://vimeo.com/427237377 - there are a bunch of improvements in the open data and in the shared data systems." I asked Sean about the impact on the DT to city leaders decision making. This is his response... "In our system we are open unless otherwise stated. We have used it as a VR experience with about 7000 wellingtonians in creating the City Resilience Strategy and Te Atakura- the Climate CHange Response and Adaptation plan. There are more descrete uses such as the proposals for the Alcohol Bylaw - https://www.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=2c4280ab60fe4ec5aae49150a46315af - this was completed a couple fo years ago and used part of the data sharing arrangements to make liquor crime data available to make decisions. I have the advantage of being a part of local government in getting civic buy in. Every time our councillors are presented with this kind of information they want more." Alcohol Control Bylaw – New
  8. David Willans of Anmut recently sent me this invitation and I thought I should share it here (with permission). On 24th February, 11am GMT, Anmut are running a webinar about data valuation. When we mention the term, people tend to think it’s about setting a price for monetisation. That is one benefit of doing valuation, but it’s a third order benefit at best. The first and second order benefits are much more valuable and best described with two words, translation and focus. Translation Businesses are, in a simplified way, about choosing which assets and activities to allocate limited capital and resources to, to get the desired results. Data is just one of those assets, a powerful one because it enhances all the others by making decisions better, and can identify unseen problems and new opportunities. These allocation decisions are made using the money as a measure, a language if you will – invest £XXX in product / advertising / a new team / training, to get £XXXX in return. Data doesn’t fit with how a business allocates capital, which makes realising the value of it much harder. When you value it, ‘it’ being the different data assets in a business, data can be compared to other assets. It fits the ways the business runs naturally. The second order impact of this is culture change. Suddenly the business understands it has a sizeable portfolio of data assets (in our experience this is approx 20 - 30% of the total business value) and, because businesses manages through money, the business starts to naturally manage data. One caveat though, for the translation effect to happen, the way data's valued matters. If it’s just a simple cost-based method, or linear, internal estimates of use case value, the resulting valuation won’t be accurate and people won't believe it, because the figures will be based factors heavily influenced by internal politics and issues. Focus Capital allocation is a game of constrained choices, of where to focus. When a business’ portfolio of data assets is valued, it becomes very clear where to focus investment in data to move the needle – on the most valuable data assets. Again, this puts more pressure on the valuation method, because it has to be based on the ultimate source of value truth – the stakeholders for whom the organisation creates value. If you need to translate the value of data so the rest of the business gets it, or need clearer focus on how to create more measurable value from your data, this webinar will help.

  10. “Data that is loved, tends to survive.” – Kurt Bollacker In our quest to transition ourselves from a nation that simply creates data, to one where we understand and exploit its value to the betterment of society, we still have much to learn about what constitutes ‘quality’ in data. The National Digital Twin programme wants to explore how quality can be defined, and how we can begin to build the tenets and processes for high-quality data into the way we operate in our daily lives, our corporate environments, and our national institutions. This network has been created as a place to focus discussion around how our collective approach to data governance, value and quality must evolve. It provides a central point for the storage of resources that are relevant to each topic, and a forum for the open sharing of ideas, research and case studies. We will explore case studies, debate how we have learned (or not) from the mistakes of the past, and try to bring together consensus over what constitutes best in class practices for governance, quality and ultimately, value. To help in guiding and shaping the work being done, the voices of broader stakeholder groups, expert communities and organisations is invaluable. To this end, the NDTp is establishing this new network, through the DT Hub. Who should join? This is an open group accessible to any member of the DTHub. This is an actively developing area and broad participation is widely encouraged from individuals from all backgrounds. Admin & Security This Community will be supported by CDBB and the National Digital Twin programme by a network manager (James Harris) and supported by the core NDTp team. Please note that due to the open nature of the DT Hub, the community is not suitable for the discussion of sensitive or commercial information.

    Benefits Webinar - watch now!

    On the 20th October the NDTp were delighted to be joined by 100 attendees at a webinar to discuss the benefits of digital twins and connected digital twins. Miranda Sharp, NDTp Commons Lead, chaired a panel of experts: Leigh Dodds, ODI; Herman Heynes, Anmut; Peter Vale, Thames Tideway; Paul Hodgson, Greater London Authority The Webinar aimed to understand how to capture the benefit of digital twins and connected digital twins including; To create new revenue through data driven solutions Improved asset management Decision support and assurance Systems thinking; balancing the objectives of cost, safety, security and environmental sustainability New value from data driven solutions The Panel covered wide ranging subjects, responded to questions from the attendees sharing their views on the benefits of exchange of information.
  13. Enterprises creating digital twins have a need to understand the benefits their digital twins bring to their own operation but also the benefits which accrue to their customers, supply chain, local community, industry network and relevant government bodies.  An understanding and harnessing of these benefits has the potential to drive not only individual business cases but also impact regional development spend, regulatory price controls and national policy.  In response to this need, CDBB commissioned a piece of work to create a logic model to find a consistent way to describe the benefits of connecting digital twins.  That model has the potential to deliver both the forward view to guide investment decisions in connecting digital twins and also a retrospective assessment of the benefits achieved by connecting them. Read the CDBB blog, What is the point of a National Digital Twin?  to find out more about the logic model The NIC’s Data for the Public Good report and other publications have described benefits to the economy and enterprises from the sharing of data in a secure and resilient way.  As such, the National Digital Twin programme was set up to create the Information Management Framework to enable that secure resilient data sharing in the built environment and beyond.    The vision for the National Digital Twin is not a central repository of all data rather it is a ] principles principles based means to connect data or individual twins to create both public good and value.   The challenge is to understand where the greatest value can be created from the connection of individual twins.   The NDTp will be running a webinar on 20th October where we will discuss the challenges of valuing data assets, the good they deliver, and how connected digital twins may change the way we do business.   To receive the link to the webinar, register via Eventbrite; https://ndtbenefits.eventbrite.co.uk The Webinar will be held, 11:00 – 12:00, Tuesday 20th October, via Zoom Webinar Hosting and chairing the webinar will be the National Digital Twin programme’s Commons Stream Lead, Miranda Sharp. Joining Miranda will be a panel of experts; Leigh Dodds – ODI ; Leigh is Director of Delivery at the Open Data Institute. You can read about the ODI’s work on data institutions here: https://theodi.org/article/designing-sustainable-data-institutions-paper/   Herman Heyns – ANMUT Herman is CEO at Anmut and Member of Tech UKs Digital Twins Working Group. Anmut is a consultancy that enables organisations to manage data like any other asset.

  14. A very sunny and warm hello to fellow enthusiasts !!! I have been reflecting on the quite unbelievable Digital Twin journey over the last 2 years and having to pinch myself at the progress that has been made. Within Costain, Digital Twin is recognised in all corners as something our industry needs to do, in the big wide world the same can also be said with what seems to be an ever increasing global drive! Wanting to challenge not just myself but the community at large, here are a two 'big ticket' items of reflection where it feels as though we haven't yet fully succeeded: 1 - Collaboration - now don't get me wrong, the collaboration from DT has been truly exceptional and is, I believe, changing industry. However are we still creating digital dots that are yet to be properly connected? For NDT to really be successful we need to reach a point where open conversations can take place between Gov, academia and industry in a way that has not traditionally happened. Discussions that are 'warts and all' that would not normally happen between say an owner / operator and supplier, or between Government and industry. We risk restricting the value of DT which will verge on the magical if truly transparent. 2. - Engineering mindset - No surprise here that as an engineering led industry the focus with DT's appears to be largely engineering focused. In a recent piece of work looking at data trusts, the legal complexity of scaled data sharing has been eye opening. What if a decision is made based on data from say 10 organisations, and that decision leads to an issue because of some low quality or incorrect data, who is then liable? Would it be possible to identify the bad quality data? Exposure to leading research has identified the complexity in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, accountability and security in relation to collaborative data sharing. It was also interesting to hear about work by the Financial Conduct Authority looking at what a Data Conduct Authority might look like, where data might be monetised. As we look past the engineering foundations, there is a lot to do. I hope people do not view any of the above negatively, this all screams opportunity and is only natural as we lead the world in the development of scaled, federated Digital Twins. What other big challenges do people think need some focus? Regards Kevin
  15. One might argue that the foundation for any Digital twin is understanding what information is required for the business to exist and deliver on its strategy and client needs. Without this, how do we know what information to include in our Digital Twin and how our assets are performing in carrying out this objective? I'm delivering a 3 hours free webinar on the 12th August to show a simple method for extracting OIRs from an executive document and specifying what is critical to understanding the business benefits to owning a Digital Twin. be great if you can join me!https://lnkd.in/dxF6BEN
  16. When asked by a relatively senior member of staff here what the Digital Twin is all about, and why they should care, I pulled together some SmartArt (pictured) to try to explain the component parts of an infrastructure organisation's twin. Keen to get the wider community's thoughts on this approach. Digital Twins are having a bit of moment here at Highways England, to the extent that our principle risk is not a lack of twins, but a surfeit of incompatible twins. I'm beginning to think that the ‘Digital Twin’ of a complex organisation such as HE will actually need to function as a hierarchical system of systems. We need to understand how our organisation functions and what it looks like from a conceptual data perspective (the Schema), we then need a single source of truth, preferably one structured as a graph to reflect the Ontology (the Data), and finally there will be the specific manifestations of the above for different parts of the business (e.g. BIM, digital product catalogues, design, porfolio management etc. etc.) which should be united by the common schema and data above.
  17. The National Digital Twin Programme hosted a webinar on Monday 8th June 2020 to discuss and answer questions about the recently published Pathway towards an Information Management Framework. We were delighted to receive many questions during the webinar, and hope that those the panel were able to answer helped deepen understanding and expand interest in the Information Management Framework and the National Digital Twin Programme. We have added those, and the questions we couldn't get to in the available time, as topics within this forum, collated by subject. We would like to invite you to add your suggestions and to take part in the discussion on the DT Hub around the development of the National Digital Twin. We will use the discussions here to compliment the Open Consultation being run through the CDBB website on the IMF Pathway.. As Mark Enzer, the Head of the NDT Programme, said in the webinar, we need to continue to build consensus through collaboration, and progress through sharing and learning together. For those who missed the webinar, a video of the webinar is now available and attached below is a transcript of the the event. IMF Pathway Webinar 08062020 Transcript FINAL.pdf
